Well I had a very productive Easter in the stitching department. And with such lovely, balmy Autumn sunshine, the garden also received some attention.
Next project -
And I finally made a start on "The Splendid Sampler" blocks. I had been collecting these each week since it started in February - I certainly won't be keeping up at this rate, but will work on them as time allows. The heart block was quick to do, but that butterfly block, despite being small, took quite a lot of time. Not perfect, but hopefully in the overall scheme of things you won't notice a wonky square or two. .
And I have been doing some secret sewing. My lovely friend Karen in Brisbane had a birthday recently and I always love sewing and finding some bits to send her (very easy I might add - our tastes are so similar it's scary lol) -
This is a little Rosalie Quinlan design and fits into this cute little frame.
This was a little freebie Gail Pan pattern and I blew it up a few sizes and made into a wallhanging.
